Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Don Banks of SI.com reports that teams are "teams are wary of Bowe's decreased effort level after he earns a big payday." Remember all those times we questioned Bowe's effort last season? ...Oh, you don't? Don't worry. I recapped them all here for you.

That time he took a bone-wrenching shot to the thigh, went back in, caught a 22-yard pass on 4th-and-15 with less than a minute left ... but couldn't stop Matt Cassel from throwing an interception on the next play!

That time he was on the injury report with a "neck/back" injury and played anyway ... but didn't score the three touchdowns the Chiefs needed to get back in the game!

That time he spit something that didn't look like water after staying in to block and a Browns defensive lineman cracked several of his ribs. But he only had 70 yards before the injury!
